Plain of Jars, Laos on a Stormy Day
The Plain of Jars in Xieng Khouang province in Central Laos remains a mystery to today. No one has been able to determine whether the jars, dated from the Iron Age, were for storage, burial chambers or something else. The day on the plains started out wet, windy and cold, but eventually a little blue sky broke though and gave exploring the plains a kind of eerie feel.
I was really itching to try out my new Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L ll USM Zoom Lens and the Plain of Jars really turned out to be a great subject. That thing really does shoot w-i-d-e-.
